Bookmash: Language Myths

I wanted to produce a book spine poem using reference books – not easy, when a lot of my reference books have titles like “Dictionary of Modern Greek” or “Eymology Index”, and so on. I admit that I ended up using two fiction titles! Here is the result. Enjoy!

Language Myths

 

Empires of the word,

Fall of kings,

Lost languages; butterflies.

Legacies;

The story of writing.

 

 

With thanks to the authors Laurie Bauer & Peter Trudgill, Nicholas Ostler, David & Stella Gemmell, Andrew Robinson, Kate Davies, Alison Sinclair, Andrew Robinson. And of course special thanks to Stan Carey, where I got the idea in the first place!
